    Close enough! That looks amazing. Where did those come from? Is there a list somewhere to get on for another run?

    Hah! Once I post online here; my copyrights are gone. You can use them.

    I personally don't consider those Alt Wiens due to the lack of broguing on the sides. But still beautiful shoes and sadly another pair I am selling due to fit.

    That's a rhetorical question, right?

    Great collection, some of the best Alden models there, if you ask me.

    Thanks for the update NewYawker. Sam from Context also got back to me, it seems the change to antique edging really generated a lot of interest. The current order is filled pending completion of a few deposits, and they have enough people contacting them to fill a second 12-pair order. They are working as fast as they can to keep up with the pace.

    In terms of the edge, Context is making the color 8 tanker with antique edging starting from this order and all future orders. They've reached out to Alden direct to confirm this detail, but it was their initial intend to change from black to antique edging. Once they hear back from Alden, they will reach to people who are on the order to let them know.

    Thanks for the update zenny! Good to know. It is a great make up - worth the wait. Sam and Will have both been great and gotten back to me in reasonable time frames. I think sometimes we all get a little crazy when it comes to these make ups and its wise to remember they are also running a retail operation. Small staff trying to do their best. Hopefully I can get in on this or the next order. I would buy from them in the future.

    Are you seriously trying to sell a pre-order spot on a list for $200?

    Anyone here ever deal with Wayne from Hong Kong? The one with a big IG following. I'm buying a pair of cigar PTB from him. Any feedback?

    First non-overcast day we've had since the 911s arrived so I finally got to see the color in direct sunlight. These are keepers for sure!
